The new Grove GMK4100L-2 all-terrain crane is making its worldwide debut this fall at GIS in Italy.

Manitowoc is unveiling its new 100 ton Grove all-terrain crane at the GIS exhibition in Italy this fall.

The exhibition is set to run from Oct. 7 to Oct. 9 in Piacenza.

The Grove GMK4100L-2 all-terrain crane is making its worldwide exhibition debut at the fair, the company said.

“This latest four-axle 100 ton capacity mobile crane from Grove comes with a Euromot 5/Tier 4 final engine and features a 60 metre main boom,” it said in a press release.

With reduced weight and new counterweight versions the GMK4100L-2 can carry up to 6.8 ton of counterweight within 12 ton per axle, making it the “perfect taxi crane” with strong load charts that crane rental companies can use without additional transport, it said.

When travelling between jobsites, drivers benefit from the new carrier cab which meets the latest crash-test requirements in Europe and is ECE R29-3 approved. Space inside the cab has been increased, while the overall compact dimensions of the all-terrain crane remain unchanged. This is an important consideration as jobsites become increasingly more constrained.

Within a 2.55 metre width, Manitowoc accommodates plenty of features in the carrier cab’s interior. Practical compartments in the dashboard, between the seats and integrated into the vehicle’s doors offer ample space to store loose items and documents. In addition, operators can move easily between the driver and passenger side as the central console no longer divides the cab. Overall, the generous layout of the new operator environment offers a feeling of increased space that customers can experience first-hand at the booth during GIS.

Enrico Angiolini, sales director for Manitowoc Italy said: “GIS offers an advantageous opportunity for us to showcase and promote Manitowoc’s innovations to the Italian market. This will be the first trade show Manitowoc Italy has attended since the last GIS edition in 2019 and we cannot wait to present the powerful, compact and attractive new Grove all-terrain cranes to our visitors. We are looking forward to meeting our customers again face to face, getting the chance to talk with them and update each other on our business, expectations and plans for the future. The whole team is excited to welcome customers and partners to our booth and will employ all necessary measures with regards to the latest health and safety recommendations to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone.”
